Hello, Vancouver: Welcome to Our New Store

The wait is finally over! On the morning of September 18, we opened the doors to our new store at Pacific Centre in downtown Vancouver. Come along on some of our favorite moments in the videos below—from a dynamic duo patiently (and so cheerfully) waiting in line to the opening gala fashion show to a tour of the new store.

In the months leading up to this big day, we’ve been exploring the city with some of its famous citizens. Get a glimpse of our conversations with folks like model Coco Rocha, actress Diana Bang, editor Ryan Willms and others. Then read our interviews with them for their tips on making the most of your time in Vancouver.

Occupying the first spot in line at our new store opening this morning was this adorable sister act. We couldn’t have recruited better spokespeople for this exciting event. Your attitude is contagious, ladies. Happy shopping!

On Wednesday, September 16, Nordstrom hosted a red-carpet reception and fashion show at the Vancouver Art Gallery before giving guests a sneak peek of our new digs during an in-store gala. Models wore designs by Chloé, Jenny Packham, Saint Laurent, Rick Owens, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and more. Guests included models Amber Valletta, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova; actors Camilla Belle, Zachary Quinto and Diana Bang; Hamish Bowles and Lisa Love from Vogue and many more. Watch the fashion show finale below.

Finally, take a quick (super speedy) tour of our new store!

There are a lot more videos online to satisfy your curiosity, but nothing beats a trip to Nordstrom Pacific Centre. We’ll see you there!
